So i told my advisor i had to drop the class bc the prof said "supposably" and "irregardless" within the 1st 10 minutes of the 1st class; she agreed with me that dropping it was the best choice

5:36...the word is "leech"
Well if Google says so, it must be true.
I feel your pain, some of my profs say "pacific" in place of "specific"...
9:25... What verb or noun makes the sound 'punch' or 'slam'?
Its supposedly not supposably
...isnt that the point?
My creative writing professor tried to convince me that slam and punch were onomatopoeias, not verbs... awesome.
supposably sounds like a 5 year old trying to sound smart.
Fuckin dumbass 5:03. "Google says so"? Seriously? The english language will prove 'irregardless' to be redundant. Google says so....I wish I could punch you in the face right now.
5:07 hi it's 5:03!
Supposably you could punch me in the face, but irregardless I would kick your ass.
Do you know the muffin man
The best way to spread Christmas cheer is singing loud for all to hear
7:10, great 30 Rock allusion!
7:13- Funny you're calling him a dumbass when you can't even correctly use "you're" or "too" in a sentence.
Merriam Webster identifies irregardless as a word, but a highly frowned upon word which does suggest ignorance. It is probably a blend of irrespective and regardless.
And 5:07- the correct word is supposedly, there is no b or a in that word.
In Soviet Russia, classes drop YOU!
7:13......COLLAGE?!?!?! It's COLLEGE. Obviously you're not good enough for it
Supposably is actually a word though misused 99%of the time. Too bad your instructor absolutely used it incorrectly and good for you for recognizing it
I wish my advisors were smart enough to understand why that's a bad sign.
You fucking losers. Let me ask you something, do you walk around in public correcting gramer and spelling? If so, someday, you WILL get punched in the face.
I love that people can still appreciate the English language enough to care how it is spoken and written. These posts made my morning. Thank you!
Yeay for public education! *headdesk*
I had a teacher that said "elaminated" in stead of "laminated." I feel your pain.
"7:20 i can to use those words in a sentance but thats stupid you asshole. thats what the man wants you to do."
You're the stupid asshole. You keep spelling words wrong left and right! It's spelled SENTENCE. NOT SENTANCE.
8:45: it's LOSERS not LOOSERS.
Education these days are horrible.
- "Supposably" IS a word, but I doubt your teacher was using it correctly.
- "Irregardless" is an Americanized form of "regardless." It's the same case as "toward" and "towards." Americans are really the only people to use "towards." So even though both are correct, "irregardless" is simply redundant.
supposably its college but i no better than that obviously its collage stupid
SUPPOSEDLY, not "supposably". To all those who think otherwise... Yay for education today :-/
If we are discussing these "things" so thouroughly I think they may now be words. There are some hard core keeners on this site. I think they may be the people you try to avoid sitting next to at parties.
7:32 irregardless isn't a word fucktard
It is SUPPOSEDLY. Omg that drives me crazy. I would have dropped the class too.
Oh yaaay! An intelligent TFLN. That is so funny. Props to you for dropping that class. There is no way i could sit in a class all semester listening to someone with a master's degree and no English skills.
And to those of you who think "supposably" is a word, just so you know, "alot" isn't a word, and neither is "flustrated."
it bothers me when people say "probly" instead of "probably" too
Irregardless is totally a word
Orange juice is better
haha well do what makes you happy then, I guess? :)
i hate when people say supposably. it's a d, you dumb fuckwads. supposeDly
3:04 I agree, but I believe that "prolly" is the worst mutation of probably.
12:42 not everyone goes on a semester some people are quarterly
11:08- I don't know what dictionary you are using but physicality is most certainly a word.
It's not that we don't have anything better to do, just that we don't do those things. It probably is a problem but if it contributes to maintaining our sanity I say we keep doing it.
So far I haven't seen one person realize that this has to be either a fake post or a really late post due to the fact that it's December and the drop date for classes is long gone.
Have you ever thought that perhaps it's a problem that you all have nothing better to do than insult one another on a website that is merely supposed to be funny? Just a thought :) Happy holidays!
It's supposedly, not supposably idiots.
fuck me, the people quibbling over this are most likely English majors which means you are either going to law school or are going to be unemployed. Go find a real major... science for instance and not a social one.
7:20 i can to use those words in a sentance but thats stupid you asshole. thats what the man wants you to do.
family guy rip off.
What kind of institution feels okay giving these people Masters? It's horrifying.
sounds like it would have been an easy A... atleast you're GPA would have benefitted..
9:45- what dictionary? Because I really want to go out and buy the one you're reading that contains the mythical words...
I think we people stop using grammatical English, the rest is sure to follow.
Yes and physicality isn't a word either
Probably taught the guy who labeled his Christmas decoration "reefs".
wow, fail. To all of you, big, ginormous fail.
Supposedly and supposably are both words meaning different things. Get your Masters in English and then we will debate - in the meantime good call on dropping the course - it is highly unlikely your teacher usedit correctly
10:44-- it's "is horrible", not "are horrible".
Hey it's in my area code. What school? I don't want to take that class…
7:35, that made me smile : )
Another future welfare leach.
this is ridiculous. words are often created and legitimized through frequent use. thus, 'supposably' and 'irregardless' can maybe be considered 'words' in the same way that 'truthiness' and 'strategery' are 'words'
also, just wanted to add, the spell-check in my web browser says 'supposably' is NOT a word while 'irregardless' is.
oh, and to the OP, well done. the bastardization of the english language is definitely grounds for dropping a class
6:17, The--what? Seriously, what the fuck are you trying to say?
Supposably and Irregardless are both American English. Yeah! U-S-A! U-S-A! NUMBER ONE!
U guys r stupid ur goin to debate the way a word shuld prolly be spelled get a life
12:05: i know I said physicality isn't a word to piss people off it just doesn't sound like one to me
7:32 I'm glad you got them all! I was just trolling and baiting those who are obsessed with grammar. It's the easiest type of trolling there is. I'm actually a little surprised it took until the third person in to figure out all the glaring errors.
And it's people like that teaching the future leaders.
irregardless is just the hypercorrection of regardless, and is also the informal pronunciation. also, supposable is a word, but not supposably, prob. meant supposedly like 6:01 said
Wow, The grammer police are really getting off on this. Fucking loosers.
Dude. You guys are missing the point. Yeah, they're words, but usually teachers would frown upon saying them. Thus, the teacher in the OP's class is a total nimrod.
6:17 works at mcdonalds. no doubt.
William Strunk says 'irregardless' should never be used in writing. If the Elements of Style says to refrain from using it, then the world should refrain from using it.
last semester my geography professor spent the 1st 20 min of class trying to convince us Iceland is not a country. She wasn't joking. It was a really long semester. Wish I had dropped
658...'slam' and 'punch' can be both; onomatopoeia is simply a word that sounds it's meaning. But I'll bet you know that, don't you?
I would have dropped it too. AWFUL!
omg if he had only said "acrost"
To 9:05. Those aren't words dumbass. That's the whole joke. Sounds like you were a participant in this class as well.
I went to school in america for about a month. In English class they actually had to tell everyone that "anyways" with an s is not a real word.
NO FUCKING SHIT.
omg u r my hero for dropping that class!
Irregardless is a word. It's just a frowned upon word. Google says so.
1:28 I was on quarters, the new quarter (though technically a trimester) doesn't start after thanksgiving, it starts the beginning of January.
That happened to me too! Fuck that bitch
Supposably is a word, the dictionary says so.
I peer edited a paper last week. The girl used "husban" throughout the whole paper. Apparently she had no idea husband has a "D" on the end. She also didn't know the difference between "woman" and "women".
wow. this entire feed is about grammar or spelling. seriously? what the fuck?
Hahaha. That's always a bad sign. I bet there are a ton of people thinking "why is that bad?"
My very humble prediction is that in 50 years time, supposedly will have died, supposably will have lost whatever meaning the dictionary thinks it has now and will have replaced supposedly, and irregardless will have died out as a bad bad joke.
i would of stayed in the class, your a dumbass for dropping. you think your to good for collage? Stupid dumb asshole.
Irregardless is a word.
This isnt even remotely humorous. Sorry but .... Fail!
I support your decision as well. Anyone who doesn't, well, it's clear that they also have no understanding of the English language.
yayyyy grammar police ftw
Please take a moment and review what you just wrote.
Oh, wait, you missed TOO. Close enough.
alli is a fuckin slut who loves it when i cum in her mouth and swap that shit with my lucky broom which is from a horse
U shoud nt quit that's bad that's not we'll for poor people they can't aford that And u should just deal with itttt
I don't know what college you go to, but supposably IS a word. And so is irregardless.
